15 Things You Should Know When Financing a Car

Are you ready to finance your next car? If yes, here is everything you need to know about financing a car

#15. Know your credit score

Whether you are financing your vehicle through a bank or a dealership, always ensure that your credit score favours you. The higher the credit score, the easier it will be for you when negotiating for a car loan.

#14. Understand the costs involved

It is your responsibility to calculate all the costs involved and determine if the car gives you value for your money. Moreover, do not sign the contract before reading and understanding it.

#13. Get approval first, then shop

It is advisable to seek financing offers from your lender or bank before going shopping for a car. This is because it transforms you into a 'cash buyer', thus giving you more negotiating power.

#12. Make as much down payment as you can

Increasing your down payment allows you to pay less in monthly payments and clear your loan in a shorter period. It will also ensure the interest you pay will be significantly lower.

#11. Avoid late payments as much as you can

Late payments on your car loan will attract penalties, thus raising the money you will pay.

#10. Calculate a Realistic Budget

Calculating a realistic budget will allow you to stay within your monthly safety net. It is ideal if you can pay for a vehicle with cash; however, for the majority of automotive consumers, it is not practical nor feasible.

#9. Monthly Expenditure

Knowing what you can spend monthly depends on your life assets. It is important to consider your current financial situation. What you owe, spend, and earn in a month.

#8. A Car That Suits Your Needs

There are so many cars to choose from in the automotive industry. Should you buy a small compact car that takes you from point A to B? Or would you rather have an SUV or a minivan for those school runs or weekly trips to hockey practice? Or maybe a big truck, as you may need it for moving or hauling? We recommend that you buy a car that suits your needs and lifestyle in the long run. You can always rent for short term needs.

#7. Identify and prioritize your wants

As a first-time buyer, it is an exciting time to get into your new vehicle. It doesn't have to be a perfect car the first-time round. But we would recommend that the car you purchase ticks off your want list. It is better to pay the extra $50/m, than to be sorry for the next 18 months. Skip a few eating out days.

#6. Do your research (it has never been easier)

Seen a car you like. It is essential that you do your research before you purchase it. Google is your best friend; ask a friend that you trust about the cars or the product specialists at Truro Mitsubishi.

#5. Locate a convenient dealer

It is essential to find the right dealer for your new car. We recommend that you compare the dealership in your chosen location. Check their environment and staff's automotive and finance knowledge.

#4. Take a test drive

Take the car of your dreams for a test drive. Make sure to take your time and experience your test drive through different terrains and speeds limits. Make sure you are satisfied with the way the car feels in your hands and the comfort of the drive.

#3. Determine the proper purchase price

Once you are ready to purchase, negotiate a price. It's better to start at a reasonable price.

#2. Secure financing, or know your options

Make sure you have done your research on different financing options available to you. It could be your bank, credit union or insurance providers. This is a pivotal step before you make a financial agreement of purchase,

#1. Enjoy the process
